    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview Details

    Standard technical interview. Questions related to algorithms and design and data structures. Focus on optimizing solutions. They look more at how you approach the problem than the solution itself. Interview consisted of 4-5 round with different developers. They paid for the accommodation and food and flight. I did not get an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about one week later. A phone screen was then scheduled with the hiring manager. Phone screen went well and I was moved to the next phase which was an onsite group interview. I wasn't informed that it was going to be a group interview but regardless, it went perfect.

    I contacted the recruiter one week later for an update and she replied stating that she expected more information from the team within a week. I never heard back from the recruiter after that.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter asked me several easy questions during phone interview. However, I did not do well so I guess that was the reason why I did not move forward with their process.

    Mixed Signal Design Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at NVIDIA.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by phone twice. In the first interview, I was interviewed by an experienced mixed-signal designer. His questions follows a certain flow, like device physics about depletion region, common source amplifiers, current mirror, noise analysis, gain-boosting amplifiers, 2.5bit-per stage in pipelined ADC, sigma-delta modulator, and noise profile of free running VCO and PLL transfer functions. Some of the topics were chosen from my resume. The second interview was held by a senior design engineer. She sent me a pdf to solve circuit problems, mainly focused on large signal analysis, output impedance analysis, feedback analysis and miller compensation. I did not do well in this part so I got kicked off.

    Interview Questions
    • What is MDAC gain in 2.5bit-per-stage in pipelined ADC? I understood the answer after the interview... In the continuous-time sigma-delta modulator, can the gain-boosting amplifier be designed with a lower bandwidth? This is really hard to understand for new college grads if you don't have experience in designing that... Why is the intrinsic gain of BJT is higher than that of MOSFET? You need to review that the p-substrate in NMOS is lightly doped and and therefore more sensitive to reverse bias, and this is also where channel length modulation comes into the picture. Some of the circuit problems are really novel and I have to come up with new techniques to analyze it.   Answer Question
